Hi. I started juicing within 5 weeks of being dia with mets to lungs and bones last May. I see a herbalist who specialises in cancer and I take alot of supplements each day - and I mean alot. I have a strict routine and cut out all sugar - but do enjoy some red wine at the weekend. I have a scan at the end of May - results beginning of June and this will be my first indication if any of this is working. My last scan was after my chemo so couldn't really tell. I feel really well - I am still working full time and cycling to work and doing alot of exercise. If my scan is bad news I will have to reconsider.
Just typed and lost reply!
Get yourself a Ninja blender/juicer from QVC, the shopping channel. They are brilliant for blending, mixing and chopping all sorts and are less than £30 delivered. You can put the peel from the fruit in and use whatever you fancy, is in season or at a reduced price. Very quick to do. As I am immobile at the mo after an op, my OH makes me juice flavours and I am easily amused guessing what is in them. Quite often it's banana, apple, pear, strawberry type of mix. I think it helps my bowels too as some roughage gets minced up too, although you can't taste anything like peel. Literally only take 2 mins to make a juice or you can add yoghurt, milk etc to make it more smoothie.
If you give up on juice, the machine can be used for cake mixture!
Hi - I juice too (I have been using a nutribullet but they are a bit pricey). But there are also lots of naughty things in my diet aswell 🙂 and still way too much wine (must address this). I would just say though if you are going to look into supplements etc then run them past your BCN or Onc first - I was sent a massive bag of Apricot Kernals by a friend and wasn't allowed to have them! I was also told to stop taking any supplements when I was diagnosed with primary (although my mum was told the opposite)! You will need to check nothing will interfere with the Perjeta trial unfortunately! xx
I've been juicing for a while now but if you go to superjuiceme.com you will find many recipes/
The supplements I take are: Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin D3, Vitamin B6, Multivitamins and Zinc.
I also have Apricot husks with pineapple chunks every morning.
Hope this helps.
